On Tenderness – Dec.2021

Standard

*

where did my soul go

she’s hurt and offended

she’s hiding from me

from others I will go now

looking for her I will

walk long step after step

until the blood pumps

until the heart awakens

until my legs hurt no more

until I could hear my soul’s

voice calling me out to be

taken softly in my arms

.

If I could

Standard

*

if I could just scan

the soil and the earth

looking for ghosts

.

lingering

.

looking for

someone they pretend

they lost

.

taking time

.

while we blindly go

continuing our lives

.
